Snail Window Cleaning Bot

snailbot.jpg

This bot does windows and walls, and any other flat surface a human cannot reach easily. The Snail by Yasunori Goto, Ibe Tommokichi and Hirata Ichiro, climbs and sticks to surfaces with the help of air compression suction. It connects with a safety cable that houses a power cord and communication cable. Attachments are added to clean, paint, carry tools and take pictures, thereby making it rat on itself should it do a lousy job.
